Waterstones Says

The two-time Olympian and bestselling author of Black Box Thinking turns his expertise to inspiring the next generation. A powerful, positive tool to help children find their self-belief.

I'm no good at sport ... I can't do maths ... I really struggle with exams ... Sound familiar?

If you believe you can't do something, the chances are you won't try. But what if you really could get better at maths, or sport or exams? In fact, what if you could excel at anything you put your mind to?

You Are Awesome can help you do just that, inspiring and empowering young readers to find the confidence to realise their potential.

The first children's book from Times journalist, two-time Olympian and best-selling author of Bounce, Black Box Thinking and The Greatest, Matthew Syed, it uses examples of successful people from Mozart to Serena Williams to demonstrate that success really is earned rather than given, and that talent can be acquired.

With hard work and determination, practice and self-belief, and, most importantly, a Growth Mindset, there's no reason why anyone can't achieve anything.

Practical, insightful and positive, this is the book to help children build resilience, embrace their mistakes and grow into successful, happy adults.

'An inspiring, uplifting read. I wish I'd had it as a kid.' - Dermot O'Leary

'An awesome book about becoming awesome. How inspiring it is to know that there's a path to awesomeness and that anyone - absolutely anyone - can go down that path. This book shows you how.' - Professor Carol Dweck 

'You Are Awesome' brings the enlightening writing of Matthew Syed to a younger audience. This is no flowery self help book. It is a carefully plotted narrative journeying through accessible evidence for the younger reader and inspirational examples of the benefits to the acquisition, for children, of a growth mindset. It is engaging, humorous and relevant for all young people. Destined to become a staple read for children at home and school.' - Will Smith, Director, PiXL

'I read You Are Awesome in one go, and then read it again! It answered so many questions I had about how to get better at some of the things I struggle with. It has stories of how others have been successful and makes you feel that you can do it too. After reading You Are Awesome I've changed how I approach difficult things. I've told all my friends to read it! - Freddie Smith, age 10
